The ability to be creative is a quality we all posess. Our daily life, with all it‘s complex, varied and often unpredictable situations, would never be possible without it. Our bodies are also creative: they grow, they heal, they manage tons of micro-processes all the time, they adapt, they age, they move, and they deal with challenges. Evolution itself is a process of utmost creativity. Well, life is creative and so are we.
But what happens when the expression of our creative potential is blocked or supressed? What if we don’t always manage to have or realize new ideas? What if we tend to get stuck in routines and repitition even in our creative processes? What if we are too scared, judgemental or ashamed to dare to express ourselves creatively? The short answer is: we suffer. Being creative is a basic need for ourselves and our bodies. Ignoring this need can make us unsatisfied, imbalanced or even sick. (Assuming that creative expression can take many many different individual forms – not everybody has to be a painter. We can also neglect the need to plan a journey, to cook differently or to go to a club we have never been to…) This might be even more true for people in artistic and creative professions. Their existence depends on their ability to be creative and imbalances in their creative work can turn their biggest passion into their worst enemy. Yes, each process of growth has its aspects of struggeling and going through challenges But in contrast to the conventional view that „art requires a certain amount of suffering“, my mission is to teach to be more creative, more authentic, more daring, more visionay with less effort, less suffering and less hindrances.
How? Please read on :-)
I offer a unique style of a somatic based creativity training and coaching for artistic and creative professionals like actors, musicians, singers, composers, performer, writers, sculptours, painters, designers, photographers, dancers, directors, choreographers, architects… The training is mainly for professional and established artists but can also be for people that want to enhance their creative abilities in certain fields of their lives.
These are examples for subjects in creativity trainings:
„Creative block“: the inability to find ideas, inspiration or a powerful way to realize an idea
A lot of contract work and no time for your own creative projects? How to escape a mode of just „delivering“ or „functioning“ and bring back the passion, enthusiasm and creative freedom in your profession?
Pressure to succeed: How to continue after a big success without feeling pressured or tied to a certain creative direction? How to escape the need to please or to fulfill expectations and still sell well? How to develop an indivdual style without being in the cage of a specific „image“ as an artist?
Daring to choose new paths: like every other aspect of life creativity evolves and develops. Once in a while, we need something new or a change of direction. How to open up new creative horizons when routine and habit have found and trapped us?
Dealing with success and fame: it might sound paradox but dealing with great successes can be challenging… Learning how to stay relaxed, energetic and authentic when becoming very successful or becoming a public figure.
Dealing with typical situations and problems in creative professions:
Negotiating confidently; a healthy way of dealing with money, time and structure; reducing stress in times of challenge; presenting oneself successfully and authentically; using failures, crises and disappointments constructively,…
We meet either in your studio/office/working space or in my center… It makes sense to do the creativity training close to where you work and what you work with – but that’s not a necessity. As well as the one-on-one format it is also possible to do the creativity training in a group setting: either during the production process of a common creative piece or as a workshop for a group of indviduals that deal with a shared subject connected to creativity.
